Zopo C3 packs in 5-inch FHD screen, quad-core CPU for under $300

zopoc3The ZOPO C3 is one of the more potent smartphones to come on the market for under $US300, with its surprising list of features, including a 1080×1920-pixel resolution panel built from LTPS technology, measuring 5.0 inches and up to 1GB of RAM on-board.

Other major features include a MediaTek MT6589T quad-core Cortex A7 SoC chip delivering up to 1.5GHz of processing horsepower, while a PowerVR SGX544 graphics processor core handles that 5.0-inch display.

Internal storage is delivered through 16GB of on-board flash, while you can use MicroSD, up to 64GB, to provide extra storage for the device. Android 4.2.1 (Jelly Bean) powers the ZOPO C3′s chip. And for power, the battery – a 2000mAh Lithium-ion type – should do reasonably well, although there are no standby or talk times to hand for this one.

If you want local wireless options, there are plenty with 802.11b/g/n on-board and for low-power personal wireless, Bluetooth 2.0 has that reasonably covered. There’s basic 2G coverage on networks supporting the 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900MHz bands while 3G is covered by 850 / 2100MHz bands but WCDMA only.

You can capture still images via the 13MP camera on the back of the device or simply use the front-facing 2MP camera for personal shots.

The ZOPO C3 measures 143 x 70 x 8.5mm and but is starting to get a little heavy at 162g, when compared with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S4. The product was announced back in June 2013 and you can pick it up now from retailers for around the $US280, which isn’t a bad result for a phone with the same resolution as a 50-inch big-screen TV.
